Create Impact in Cardinia

Collective giving changes lives. The Cardinia Foundation has an established community chest that with your help, we can continue to be able to respond to the needs of our community.

We have a number of ways you can help support.


Each year the Cardinia Foundation distributes community grants to assist local charities. In the last two decades we have supported local projects to the value of $830,000.

To help us fund even more projects and initiatives, make a regular or one-off donation to the Foundation. Your gift won’t just impact the community now, it will help Cardinia thrive into the future.

All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

Leaving a gift in your will is an amazing way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime.

Food Support Fund

Our Cardinia community continues to be heavily hit by cost of living pressures and many of our neighbours and friends are turning to food banks and community meals as they simply do not have enough funds left to buy food. 

More than 30% of our community are experiencing mortgage or rental stress.

There are many great organisations and volunteers across the region that assist the community in times of need. Funds received will be able to support grants to local organisations that support the community with food aid and meals.

We aim to raise $100,000 to establish an ongoing Food Support Fund, ensuring sustainability into the future for our community through our grants program.
